Driver updates for Windows, along with many devices, such as network adapters, monitors, printers, and video cards, are automatically downloaded and installed through Windows Update. You probably already have the most recent drivers, but if you'd like to manually update or reinstall a driver, here's how:

download windows 8 drivers

Download File

The CP210x USB to UART Bridge Virtual COM Port (VCP) drivers are required for device operation as a Virtual COM Port to facilitate host communication with CP210x products. These devices can also interface to a host using the direct access driver.

I have seen this a couple of times. I generally recommend to NOT update virtual machine tools drivers via Windows Update, this has to be a controlled process. You can configure a group policy/registry setting, to prevent drivers from Windows Update/WSUS.

I just purchased a 4880 to replace perfectly workable older machine, 4150, because Canon never put out Win 8 drivers that worked well for scanning on that machine. Understandable, i guess, as it was fairly old. The 4880 was working great in Win 8 environment which is where I should have left things. But I checked Windows Compatibility site before upgrading to Win 8.1, and this machine was listed as "compatible."

Well, it's not. In fact, it's almost completely nonfunctional, with limited printing capability, but no scanning or two-way communication with the PC. Imagine my frustration when I contacted Canon and they said, no, we have no drivers, and "probably" will, but there's no way to know when. "Could be two days, could be six months," one rep said.

So, I'm thinking about returning it. Pretty shocked Canon would not have updated drivers for the OS now being sold on new PCs, especially when the OS has been out in developer stage for months. Does anyone else have better info on this, ie, is it worth keeping the machine past the return window on the chance that Canon might update the drivers? Meanwhile, be warned that if you have a machine in this series and want to upgrade to Win 8.1, you're asking for it.

Thank you so much. Actually I just recently did much of what you have outlined here. The process was somewhat different, because I have my printer installed as a wired network printer to facilitate its use across my home network. But I essentially did the same thing: I removed all traces I could find of the drivers, disconnected printer from network, rebooted, plugged printer back into network (I'm not using USB, learning from past mistakes, then reinstalled WIndows 8 drivers from website. They seem to work for both print and scan. (However I'm not banking on long term, as I got my previous machine to work in Win 8 for a period of time, then it didn't.)

Anyway. I'm happy to have it working for now. But I am mystified as to why none of the three Canon support people I talked to about this problem had any inkling the drivers would work. They all told me to sit by and wait.

Anyone else out there in Canon-land thinking about intstalling win 8.1 -- I would uninstall all the software from my machine, do the upgrade, then reinstall the drivers, which would probably solve many problems. (I also had to remove and reinstall another Canon inkjet printer running wifi.)

I understand that you are having issues with the printing and scanning functions now that the printer is connected to your Windows 8.1 operating system. The drivers for the Windows 8 operating system do work on Windows 8.1. I recommend performing a full uninstall and reinstall of the drivers, using the instructions below:

***Please leave the USB cable disconnected until you have uninstalled and completely reinstalled the drivers. Connecting the printer before going through the "Setup Wizard" may cause the Windows operating system to install a generic driver for the printer.***

I have followed all the steps but when I try to install the new driver, I receive an error message "an older version of MF Drivers exists in this computer." I have already uninstalled all canon devices and the printers. I dont seem to have any other canon drivers. How can I solve this? I am finding this problem very frustrating!

My Canon is actually the MF4270. I followed the steps you outlined exactly for Windows 8.1, uninstalling and reinstalling the printer, drivers and toolbox. When I click on the MF Toolbox PDF, I receive the message "A supported scanner is not installed. Please install a supported scanner, and then restart Toolbox."

In order to scan from the imageCLASS MF4270, it will need to be connected to your computer by a USB cable. You will need to reinstall the drivers and select [USB] as the option, when the computer connection option is displayed.

I did all that with a nice tech guy from Canon - but we were unable to get the scan drivers installed. It keeps saying "Scangear is currently open... close... & rerun"... Nothing we did managed to get us past the message.

Virtual COM port (VCP) drivers cause the USB device to appear as an additional COM port available to the PC. Application software can access the USB device in the This page contains the VCP drivers currently available for FTDI devices.

Virtual COM port (VCP) drivers cause the USB device to appear as an additional COM port available to the PC. Application software can access the USB device in the same way as it would access a standard COM port.

The SES driver will auto install when the drive is attached and found if drivers are not installed.

Newer WD SES Drivers are not available for download from Western Digital. They are only available through Windows or macOS updates.

Install optional drivers for your printer manually in Windows 11 Select Start > Settings > Windows Update. Select Check for updates at the top of the page. Windows Update might find an updated version of your printer driver. To use it: Select Start , then select Settings > Windows Update. .Select Check for updates

I have facing much familiar thing with me I have windows 10 but I am unable to download proper driver I couldn't even install successfully still waiting and search drivers which is comptiable with my windows 10 bit 64.

Fedora infrastructure hosts virtIO drivers and additional software agents for Windows virtual machines running on kernel-based virtual machines (KVM). virtIO is a virtualization standard for network and disk device drivers.

Before running the installer, please ensure that the hardware supported by the drivers is not connected. If the hardware is connected when the installer is run, this can prevent the successful installation of the driver files.

As of version, the Adafruit drivers package is no longer signed, and some of the drivers it contains are also no longer signed. You'll need to click the second item in this dialog box when it appears:

To install AMD drivers on a Linux instance with an attached AMD GPU, such as a G4adinstance, see Install AMD drivers instead. To install NVIDIAdrivers on a Linux instance, see Install NVIDIA drivers on a Linuxinstance.

These drivers are intended primarily for compute workloads, which useGPUs for computational tasks such as parallelized floating-pointcalculations for machine learning and fast Fourier transforms for highperformance computing applications.

These drivers are certified to provide optimal performance forprofessional visualization applications that render content such as 3Dmodels or high-resolution videos. You can configure GRID drivers tosupport two modes. Quadro Virtual Workstations provide access to four 4Kdisplays per GPU. GRID vApps provide RDSH App hostingcapabilities.

On Windows, the Tesla drivers are configured to run in Tesla Compute Cluster(TCC) mode. The GRID and gaming drivers are configured to run in Windows DisplayDriver Model (WDDM) mode. In TCC mode, the card is dedicated to computeworkloads. In WDDM mode, the card supports both compute and graphicsworkloads.

The options offered by AWS come with the necessary license for the driver.Alternatively, you can install the public drivers and bring your own license. Toinstall a public driver, download it from the NVIDIA site as describedhere.

Alternatively, you can use the options offered by AWS instead of the publicdrivers. To use a GRID driver on a P3 instance, use the AWS Marketplace AMIs as describedin Option 1. To use a GRIDdriver on a G5, G4dn, or G3 instance, use the AWS Marketplace AMIs, as described in Option1 or install the NVIDIA drivers provided by AWS as described in Option 3.
